Una Pizza Napoletana -Atlantic Highlands

The wait was interminable.
The pizza was ridiculous.

Without a doubt the best Pizza Napoletana I’ve had. I haven’t had it in Naples, but our daughter has. She agrees. I am not the most experienced, but I’ve had Sorbillo/Zia esterina, keste, Don Antonio by Starita, and Pizza Secret off the top of my head. (All in NY) This is another level. The dough is light yet chewy. The pizza while still wet like a Napoletana style, was not soupy.

Definitely some hiccups with the waiting list. I’m sure once things settle in they’ll figure it out. I’m not trying to whitewash this, it took us close to 3 hours to be sat. I was as annoyed as I’ve ever been in a restaurant. Told my daughter there was zero chance this was going to be worth the wait. I’m not saying I’ll wait three hours again but the pizza made me not want to kill anyone any longer.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Good lord. Next time, just go to the Orchard Street branch. Walk in, sit down, eat. Save yourself some time and aggravation.

Restaurants that care about their waiting customers will offer wine or beer or even cut up a pizza into bite size pieces to dole out.

Isn’t this place byob?

I have no clue. I was commenting only on the 3-hour wait. BYOBs can give booze away (for example, Butcher Block had a cooler of beer outside for waiting customers), but they can’t charge for it. They do have the ability to keep people from leaving or feeling negatively by providing some nosh.

No, nice wine list and craft beers. Some amari as well. Not sure if a full bar is coming

was watching Billions and saw this pop up. Has anyone been the AH location during the lockdown? Really want to try this place one day but no way my fam can handle 3 hour waits…

I have not been since my first visit. I think the trick is to get there about 1:30 and place your order when he opens at 2 as I’m not sure they even answer the phone. At least that’s what we were told when we thought we had ordered online but the site was in testing and the order was actually for the following week. d’oh!

The online ordering from the website is still not operational.

I’ll be curious how they maintain their ordering setup during the Atl Highlands summer. Plenty of alternatives door to door. Hype doesn’t work for me no matter how delicious.
